REFLECTING ON THE PARK

Tutor: Sean Martindale

This open-ended workshop will engage with Gërmia National Park and its newly protected status. Martindale will collaborate with workshop participants and explore ways of using natural and upcycled materials to create site-specific sculptural installations. The art and design workshops will offer opportunities to consider sustainability as a group, encouraging experimentation and an exchange of ideas between the artist and participants. In Prishtina, he is interested in drawing the public’s attention to the need to crate and preserve more spaces like Gërmia National Park. Martindale’s workshop aim to expand the public’s imagination and collaboratively introduce new possibilities for Prishtina.

RETHINKING PRISHTINA

Tutor: Abbas Sbeity, Malak Rahal, Ramona Abdallaha

The workshop is designed to showcase the stories behind Prishtina and the Germia Park through its people and users. The workshop will be divided into 2 sections, a theoretical part and a practical part. In the first part, they will learn about the basics of the workshop then get the chance to apply what they learned and a field work by interviewing local people, doing design research, and engaging with the community. The re-mapping will be a translation of the local stories by the creative methods of the participants. The participants will get to learn different methods for creative mapping, the relation between storytelling and design and architecture. They will also get a hands on experience on community engagement and the participatory approach in the human centered design methods. Each participant will get the chance individually or by group to execute based on his own methodology.

WHITE SHEETS

Tutor: Despoina Kouinoglou, Johannes Peter Steidl

 

In our workshop we will see the sites of interventions as white blank papers. We will cut them out and at the fringe of those sheets we will reflect the social, environmental, historical and spatial drivers of the context. We will dissect the rough diamonds, combine them with new elements, transform, interpret and implement them back into their nature. We will start from a theoretic strategy and will come to a handmade 1:1 scale. Let´s see the public space as a playground, let´s draw lines and connect spaces in the park, let´s paint all white! Let’s find the correlation of the site with its natural habitat. Let’s find ways to make it a place where people could use it day and night!

RETURNING PUBLIC

Tutor: Dastid Feratii, Aleksandra Poljanec

 

Lively Cities, a contemporary concept of city planning, is linked with pedestrian activities in city space. One of the most significant activities are the staying activities, notably sitting. The number of people staying and
length of their stay are sings of how good the city space has been designed respectively how welcoming it is.
The target of this workshop is to improve the quality of city space in Prishtina for staying activities. Before designing, it is essential to identify the local behavior and needs, to measure and survey, letting the research and its results determine the solution, hence this workshop will be research-based along with design which will consist of three stages. First the participants will research about the methodology of survey, terminology/local
mechanism, criteria and data to be collected, locations and timing. As a second phase, the participants will have to do field survey and measurements, including interviews and questioners. Once the survey has been completed, the data will be analyzed and structured in order to have the results and conclusions. Based on these conclusions some proposals will be designed and implemented in certain place as a showcase which represents the third stage. Once the design and implementation has been completed, a second survey will be done for data comparison, as a scientific way of measuring the success of it. It is expected that this workshop’s outcome will contribute in several fields. The participants will have the opportunity to be further informed about different research methodologies and problem approaches. The research and the implementation will try to increase the awareness of people for public usage, at the same time inform local designers about the research results.
